A Night On The River
Words & Music by Chris de Burgh

G                          
Naked and frozen at the side of a lake,
Am                                          D
I think I've gone and made my big mistake,
G                               Em
I took her swimming, we had a fight,
                Am                                      D
Now my clothes and the lady are well out of sight,
          C                     D                  G      D/F#      Em   Em/D
And it looks like I'm heading for a night on__ the river,
C               D                         Em
Under the moon and the stars,
C                      D                   G     D/F#       Em
Looks like I'm heading for a night on__ the river,
          C                G/B            Am         D               G
(Just) me and my beating heart, singing in the dark.

Naked and frozen at the side of a lake,
If she was here I wouldn't hesitate,
To tell her how, the way things are,
With a long conversation in the back of a car,

And it looks like I'm heading for a night on the river,
Under the moon and the stars,
Could be I'm heading for a night on the river,
Just me and my beating heart, singing in the dark;

G - C - G - D - G - C - G - D - C - G - D - Em - C - D - G
Oh,----------------------------------------------------------
B                                 
I think she owes me an explanation,
Em
She's got the whip hand in this situation,
    A                         
If I try to tell her just the way I feel,
           D
It could start the whole thing all over again,

      C                  D                   G      D/F#     Em
Ooh, I think I'm heading for a night on__ the river,
C               D                          Em
Under the moon and the stars,
C                    D                   G     D/F#       Em
Could be I'm heading for a night on__ the river,
      C             G/B             Am         D              G
But I see the lights of a car, shining in the dark,

Ooh, could be we're heading for a mm-mm,
Under the moon and the stars,
Could be we're heading for a mm-mm
Just you and me and our beating hearts,
We're singing in the dark...
